Report: Next-gen Amazon Kindle Fire HD will blow away competition BGR has posted the alleged specs for the upcoming Amazon Kindle Fire HD 2 series.
Starting with the entry-level 7-inch Kindle Fire HD, the tablet will feature 1,920 x 1,200 resolution, be powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC (including four Krait 400 CPUs and Adreno 330 graphics) that has been clocked at 1.8GHz-2.0GHz.

Additionally, the device will have 2GB RAM, a 2MP front-side camera, 16,32 or 64GB internal storage and Wi-Fi and LTE connectivity. The device will run on Android 4.2.2 with Amazon's Kindle overlay.

Moving up, the 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HD will have 2,560 x 1,600 resolution and all the same specs under the hood as its smaller cousin with the exception of an 8MP camera on the back. The current 8.9-inch model weighs 20 ounces, but that will supposedly be down significantly for the next-gen model.

Perhaps more importantly, Amazon is trying to keep the same price points as the current models; $199 and $269.
